We report the first account of a comparative analysis of the binding affinities of nine FDA approved drugs against subtype B as well as the South African subtype C HIV PR (C-SA). A standardised protocol was used to generate the inhibitor/C-Sa PR complexes with the relative positions of the inhibitors taken from the corresponding X-ray structures for subtype B complexes. The dynamics and stability of these complexes were investigated using MD calculations. Average relative binding free energies for these inhibitors were calculated from the MD simulation using the MM-GBSA method. The calculated energies followed a similar trend to the reported experimental binding free energies. Post-dynamics hydrogen bonding and electrostatic interaction analysis of the inhibitors with both subtypes reveal similar interactions. Most inhibitors show slightly weaker binding affinities for C-SA PR. MD studies demonstrated increased flap movement for C-SA PR, which can perhaps explain the weaker affinities. This study serves as a standardised platform for optimising the design of future more potent HIV C-SA PR inhibitors. © 2012 John Wiley & Sons A/S.
